• Custom UI, Cross-platform decisions, Key-value db, GitLab CI+Fastlane

    TALKS: 🎤 Will Larche 🎨❓ Custom UI with Flutter + Q&A ⏱ ~60 minutes Will is the Flutter Engineering Lead for Material Design. In his talk, he'll give us an introduction to custom drawing and share techniques for creating looks that are neither Material nor Cupertino. After the presentation, we'll have an extended Q&A. 🎤 Christian Huppertz 🚗 Native or Cross-Platform? What we learned using Flutter for the BMW Motorrad Connected App ⏱ ~30 minutes Developing code only once and run it on multiple different platforms promises less development time, less cost, less testing, and more fun than native. As a result, the product team has more time to focus on creating customer value and cool features than on solving platform-dependent technical issues. But, having two existing native apps on the market, which steps and considerations have to be made to port two apps into one codebase? What are the potential pitfalls? This presentation is about the lessons Christian and his team learned from trying to port the BMW Motorrad Connected App from native to Flutter. 🎤 Clemens Keppler ⚡️ Flutter pipeline on GitLab ⏱ ~10 minutes Just ship it! But how do you "just ship it"? Fortunately, GitLab and Fastlane provide an excellent matchup for building and releasing Flutter apps. All you need is a project in GitLab, a GitLab CI configuration file, your keystore i.e certificate and you are good to go. Furthermore, all your commits can trigger your tests and static code analysis. This ensures that every release goes through the same pipeline. https://gitlab.com/Agraphie/flutter-gitlab-ci/pipelines 🎤 Simon Leier ⚡️ Painless persistence in Flutter ⏱ ~10 minutes Flutter for web and desktop are available for preview, but there's no database which works on all platforms. Even for phones, the available options are not very easy to use or just slow. This talk will give you a quick introduction to Hive and how you can use it on all platforms with a single codebase. Simon developed Hive, a lightweight and blazing fast key-value database written in pure Dart. Learn more about Hive: https://github.com/leisim/hive SCHEDULE: We will have a schedule a couple of days before the event.

  • Coding night: Flutter Study Jam

    codecentric AG

    I’d like to invite all of you to our second study jam. The concept is simple: we meet and we create beautiful apps together. Flutter is Google’s portable UI toolkit for building beautiful, natively-compiled applications for mobile, web, and desktop from a single codebase. Flutter Study Jams are a great opportunity to get together to learn and practice this technology in person. 👨‍💻We prepared a list of awesome tutorials, so you can create something on your own, all the while we are there to help you in case you get stuck. 🐧You can also bring your own ideas or work on open-source projects. ❓You can come with questions, we’ll do our best to help you with any issue you bring. 🎤At the end of the event, you’ll have the opportunity to show to the rest of us what you worked on (presenting is optional, but encouraged). The event is best for people who already know how to code in at least one programming language. IMPORTANT 💻You need to bring your own computer. 📱Bring cables to connect your phone to your laptop, if you’d like to develop on a physical device (aka mobile phone). ⚡Don’t forget your charger. 👩‍💻Finish the Installation Guide before the event. https://flutter.dev/docs/get-started/install 🏎Finish the Test drive before the event. https://flutter.dev/docs/get-started/test-drive LOCATION 📍The event is hosted by codecentric.

  • Reactive systems with WebSockets, Flutter side project with 180k installs

    🎤 Michael Jancen-Widmer 🎤 👁 Developing Sight-Check ⏱ ~20 min Sight-Check is an opensource Flutter app that checks your eyesight. It took Michael one year of spare-time work to grow it to 180,000+ installations. It’s translated into 15 languages and has a solid 4-star rating. It currently only supports near vision diagnosis but more will be added next. https://sightcheck.github.io/ https://michaeljancen.com 🎤 Stefan Schaller, Julian Bissekkou and Tobias Marschall 🎯 Reactive systems with web-sockets ⏱ ~35 minutes This session focuses on working with web-sockets in your Flutter mobile application. You'll learn how to use web-sockets on a mobile device, how to handle errors (such as lack of internet connection), how to fetch information that you missed when you were offline and other web-socket specific issues you might face during development. HOST: The event is hosted by JetBrains: Developer Tools for Professionals and Teams. https://www.jetbrains.com/ CONTRIBUTE: 🗣️ If you would like to share your experience with Flutter, please feel free to contact us at any time. We have slots for presentations at this event. ⚡️We are also interested in lightning talks, so don't hesitate to reach out to us even if your talk is 10-minutes long or shorter. 🍕 Would you or your company like to host one of our upcoming events?
